After the Club América squad recovered from the bad start of the tournament, there were players who stood out and gave a better face to the Azulcrema team to even qualify among the first four places in Liga MX. It is true that the main responsible is Fernando Ortíz, but the great performance of some players who were previously doubted and today are undisputed starters cannot be overlooked.

Who was the renewed player?

Various media sources reported that Luis Fuentes, the Águilas' full-back defender, is the first player to be renewed by the Coapa team without having to sit down to negotiate. This is because he fulfilled the minutes played clause in his contract, so he now has another year assured to wear the Azulcrema jersey. Beyond the time on the field, it is a fact that Fuentes was one of the best players América had during the regular phase.

Since Ortíz's team started to get three points, everything seems to be going well for the Azulcrema team. Things like the automatic renewal of Luis Fuentes' contract have motivated the group to work properly towards the quarterfinals. The great challenge now will be to maintain a good tone for the next semester, although the most important thing will be how this competition ends.

America prepares for liguilla with a friendly game

Club América tied at the Estadio Azteca during the latest edition of the Clasico Joven, obtaining a point that allowed them to secure a direct pass to the Liguilla for the Clausura 2022, where they will try to overcome the quarterfinals, an instance where they have been stuck in recent tournaments. 

However, one of the problems with avoiding the playoffs is that the competitive rhythm could be compromised due to the week of rest they have during the reclassification rounds. For this reason, the Coapa board of directors decided to organize a friendly match.

Different sources have confirmed that the Águilas' opponent will be Atlante, a match that will be played behind closed doors next Thursday. Although it is important to remember that the Potros de Hierro are competing in the Liguilla of the Liga de Expansión MX, and on Wednesday they will face Atlético Morelia in the Semifinals, so only the players who do not see activity tomorrow will be the ones practicing with América.
